Amid positive feedback on the computer generated images of the 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series car design, the series has elected to show off a bit more.
The 2018 universal aero kit is something INDYCAR has been building towards for some time now, and will attach to the Dallara IR-12 chassis in a seamless transition.
As the images show, INDYCAR is pushing for an aggressive and more traditional look on its new Indy car.
The concept is expected to produce more downforce from the under the car to help enhance passing opportunities, while also adding a variety of safety elements.
Jay Frye told Motorsports Tribune that the new car should be set for its track debut sometime around mid-summer.
“We’re hopefully going to get it out on the track at the end of July or the first of August,” said Frye during Texas Motor Speedway’s reconfigured track unveiling.
“IMS (Indianapolis Motor Speedway) is where the first test will be done at.”
